Wisconsin Police State, Part 2

I could not walk through the building unless I was accompanied by both a staffer and a police officer, every single step of the way to my representative's office. I was told that I would not be allowed to use the restroom without a police officer in attendance. ~ Talking Points Memo
The State Capitol building in Madison, Wisconsin has become a place that is hard to envision. To merely enter the Capitol on the "peoples business" requires passing through a gauntlet that would have embarrassed Joe Stalin.

Gov. Scott Walker has made democracy so difficult that several legislators actually moved their offices outside the building.
The sight of stern-faced thugs in police uniforms blocking access to public buildings ought to chill the blood of all Americans. See also Substance News.

The Governor and his ilk are good Americans in the tradition of Guantanamo, the Kent State shootings, the HUAC, and the WWII internment camps that imprisoned innocent Americans because they were of Japanese descent. All who voted for them should be proud of the totalitarian state they are creating.
